PREVIEW

 

Women’s Big Bash Final has finally arrived with much anticipation and a lot of fireworks. Sydney Sixers are set to host Brisbane Heat for the final at Drummoyne Oval, Sydney. Both the teams will lock horns with each other for the third time in this season. Sydney Sixers won the first encounter, Match 24th by 11 runs. Brisbane Heat bounced back in the 27th Match and defeated Sydney Sixers by a huge margin of 66 runs. This will surely be a battle between the battle to witness who will take the title home.

Brisbane Heat won the first semi-final against Sydney thunder to book their final’s berth in Sydney. They won a close contest by just 4 runs. Sammy Jo Jhonson was declared the Player of the match for his quick-fire 33 runs and a crucial wicket in the powerplay.

Sydney Sixers dominated this campaign throughout the season and ended up at the top of the chart with 20 points. They are surely the favourites heading into this contest as they are considered the deserving winners. Sixers won the second semi-final against Melbourne Renegades in a dramatic fashion. The match went into the Super Over in which Renegades failed to hit a single boundary and asked Sixers to chase seven runs. Sixers did it with ease and won the match with two balls to spare.

The stage at Sydney is set for a thrilling finale when we will witness Sydney Sixers take on the Brisbane side. We have to wait and watch who will emerge victorious in this final battle.
